spend's half an hour trying to wotk out answer, work out answer..... Jack cox picks up calculator and not understand equation, puts in 5.82*3 and gets the the right answer
I just did maths at it. - Jack Anthony Cox
It's the best way, Jack. - Max Levin
Looked up, and I think I just thought "Half-life is 5.82, to work out the 75% time it's another half life at half concentration so it'd take twice as long, adding to the original length of time it's 3 times the length." Obviously not 100% accurate, but close enough to round to the correct answer, and not knowing the equation, a good enough estimate for a multiple choice test. - Jack Anthony Cox
cramming for tommorrow's test in #ch1070 that we have tomorrow. so much i don't know
plant diversity #bs1012, its more like plant evolution than diversity
It does seem that alot of emphasis is put on the ways in which the structure of different plants that we see now could have evolved from other structures, and all this is speculation. I was shocked that we were asked to imagine a seed-fern cupule having a bract arround it to show a transition to the carpel of a flower. The fossil record does not provide evidence for this transition,... more... - Nan Pu

Working on my #bs1003 tutorial assignment i came across a strange article. Whippets are normally slender dogs but this one was mutated and was incredibly weird, even if you haven't seen a whippet you'll still think this is freaky "". Check it out, but get ready to be shocked.
Not posted something in a while due to the cold that was slowly killing me, but i'm better now. The program tonight about the humone genome looks good... if only i had a tele, how i miss T.v
Might be a bad idea sharing this but hey! - this is what got me through my first year :). - Jaspreet Seehra

EDL march on this weekend, my advice... stay clear
Good Advice William - would be wise to stay out of the city centre on Saturday afternoon - Dr Jo Badge
Obviously 'like' in this case means 'like the comment and think other people should see it' rather than like the march. - Dr Alun Salt
I overheard some students saying they were told by a lecturer to stay away from town this weekend. My initial reaction was that those of us who strongly disagree with the views of the EDL should show up to make our feelings clear. Thinking about it some more I realized that they want confrontation and attention and the best way to treat attention seeking behaviour is to not give it any. - Roisin Thomas
